is the Love Child of Robert Hayden and Federico García Lorca.
Is this guy serious? I'm sorry, Eduardo, but if he's legitimately complaining, then he's a horse's ass. I have had 26 rjections since the beginning of this year, and no acceptances. It took me 3 years to see my first chapbook, and I am 37 years old. He has a Guggenheim, his books (10 of them) have received awards. The fact is, I may be frustrated, bu I will never really think of myself as a failure because I couldn't get FSG to publish a follow-up. As my grandfather would say: Sombitch!I gotta go find this idion and scream at him for a little while.
A lot of people have lived shitty lives. I'm willing to bet Bill's doesn't even rank in the top 20% of horrific existences. In his own estimation, it might, but all that's evidence of is an infinite, curiously inverted self-regard.
Eduardo, thanks for pointing to this. Bitter, bitter. I feel a bit overwhelmed.
HelloI would use your e-mail address but cannot access it on this computer. I see - in a much earlier post - you like Barbara Guest's poem 'Belgravia' - I've just put up a series of notes on it & would be interested in your thoughts. Best wishesJonathan(http://jjbelgianwaffle.blogspot.com/)
